The Types of Hearing Aids

There are different types of hearing aids available, and the type that is best for you will depend on your hearing loss, lifestyle and budget. 

Made for iPhone®

Made for iPhone hearing aids can directly connect to iPhone and Android phones to stream music, phone calls, and other media with excellent sound quality.

Invisible 

Invisible hearing aids rest in the second bend of the ear canal where they remain completely invisible in most ears. These can be custom-made and recommended for mild to moderately severe hearing loss.

Completely-in-the-Canal (CIC)

CIC hearing aids are a small and less noticeable hearing aid. This type of hearing aid is molded to fit snugly in the ear canal and can be used for people with mild to moderately severe hearing loss.

In-the-canal hearing aids are custom-molded to fit the ear canal. Compared to larger hearing aid styles, ITC hearing aids are less visible and can address mild to moderately severe hearing loss.

In-the-Ear (ITE)

In-the-ear hearing aids are available in two styles – full shell and half-shell. Full-shell in-the-ear hearing aids cover the bowl-shaped area of the outer ear. Half-shell in-the-ear hearing aids only fill the lower part. ITE hearing aids can address mild to severe hearing loss and can be equipped with directional microphones to help hear better in noise.

It has a discreet design with easy-to-use buttons. The RIC type is an open-fit hearing aid that rests behind the ear and transmits sound via a small tube into the ear canal. It belongs to the smallest subcategories of behind-the-ear hearing aids.

Analysis tests are primarily carried out by audiologists to assess a patient’s hearing capacity. Audiologists can identify and treat hearing loss with hearing aids and other devices. They devote a lot of effort to teaching and supporting patients and their families better communication and hearing-care techniques. Audiologists can also diagnose and handle patients who have issues with hearing and balance, and can carry out professional Ear wax removal.

Numerous factors can lead to hearing loss, so it’s crucial to obtain a thorough hearing evaluation to choose the most effective course of action. Regular exposure to excessively loud noises can increase one’s susceptibility to hearing loss over time. As a person gets older, age-related hearing loss is anticipated to happen gradually. Hearing loss may also result from taking certain treatments or medications.

Your ears could be in danger if you clean out your ears of wax using cotton buds or some other tiny, pointy objects. To avoid damaging delicate ear parts, we strongly advise professional Ear wax removal to remove wax buildup rather than using do-it-yourself methods. Professional ear wax removal is quick and generally painless. Audiologists have the appropriate tools and methods to ensure that your ears are safe during the procedure.
